As the Holy month of Ramadan comes to a close, the entire Muslim world rejoices the upcoming Eid-Ul-Fitr. This day of great joy is a reward for all Muslims who have spent the month of Ramadan fasting to rid themselves of sins committed in the past year. Eid-Ul-Fitr, in Pakistan and across all Muslim nations, is an esteemed day for delight; and one of two prestigious occasions when we spread unsurmountable happiness, delight, pleasure, and glee to each individual we hold dear.
To encompass our joy for the coming holidays; and to celebrate the spirit of the Eid, iPlex held a small event as a means to show our gratitude to the employees for their professional attitude at work during Ramadan. The Eid event took place within the office premises and the entire officewas decorated with iPlex-themed balloons, ribbons and flexes; wishing a very happy Eid to all the employees. The main hall looked spectacular with cheerful multi-colored lights and balloons.
The employees were not made aware of the event beforehand and for this reason it came as a huge surprise to many when they arrived at work to see all the celebratory props in place, the day before ChaandRaat. After Iftaar all employees were asked to assemble in the main hall for an arm-wrestling contest; everyone was categorized into two groups, Skinny ones and fats ones, an intra-group contest then ensued. Competitors were chosen at random through an ‘(un)lucky draw’; and after many rounds of vigorous competition, Muhammed Afzal and Omer Farooq, stood as our Finalist. What followed was a true clash of the Titans, and from the ashes from of this great struggle Mohammed Afzal rose as the king of the ring, the victor of iPlex’s grand competition.
Upon the end of our most monumental battle yet at Iplex, the entire staff was called together to celebrate with a company hosted dinner. Our CEO, Marco Spijkerman, was immersed in all activities and was given the honor of beginning the dinner with a celebratory cake cutting. Marco wished all the employees a very happy Eid, and we gathered together for a group picture of the entire staff.
Some time off, from the hectic routine, gave the employees some room to unwind and cool off. As always, iPlex lived up to its traditions of sharing the love and happiness with its employees, and we look forward to more recreational events to allow the employees to loosen up.
